'Want diversity and girl leaders in tech?' Just give them the opportunity, says Tony Parkin
A key challenge facing the digital technology sector is the lack of diversity in the sector’s workforce. Typically only around 12 per cent of technology staffing is female, for example.
A number of theories have been put forward about why this might be, with proposals to help address the issue. One is to encourage female students to take on digital leadership, and the GDST Digital Leaders Conference 2017 showed just how effective this strategy can be.
